A Speech from John Ross Point of View It is about the removal of the Cherokee nation and how John Ross didn’t agree to leaving their home.
This speech should convince his people to why they shouldn’t agree to leave. I have the sources that are needed for this speech. The Indian Removal policy of President Andrew Jackson was prompted by the desire of white settlers in the South to expand into lands belonging to five Indian tribes. After Jackson succeeded in pushing the Indian Removal Act through Congress in 1830, the U.S. government spent nearly 30 years forcing Indians to move westward, beyond the Mississippi River.
